About

Historia / Story

“Tierra Fracturada” aborda la problemática de los pueblos originarios de la Huasteca Potosina y Veracruzana, frente a la práctica de Fracking –incluida en la actual Reforma Energética- que busca explotar los yacimientos ricos en gas shale a pesar de la contaminación en agua y tierra que trae consigo. En medio de la discusión, quedan los intereses económicos de los grandes consorcios nacionales y globales.

Tierra Fracturada tackles the struggle of the indigenous people from the Huasteca Potosina and Veracruzana region who face Fracking as an allowed technique included in the recent Energy Reform in Mexico. This technique is used to exploit deposits rich in shale gas in spite of water and land pollution derived from its use. In the middle of the discussion, the economic interests of the large national and global consortia remain.

El Proyecto / The Project

El documental es un trabajo de más de tres años en el que un grupo de profesionales en comunicación e investigación hemos invertido recursos propios. Sin embargo, éste ha sido un factor que nos ha limitado para la parte final de producción y postproducción. La finalidad es terminarlo y exhibirlo en los foros posibles, incluyendo salas de cine, por lo que debemos cumplir con los procesos y estándares requeridos.

The documentary has been building up for more than 3 years by a group of professionals in communications and research that have invested their own resources; this factor has limited us to end the whole production and postproduction. The aim is to end it successfully for exhibition and show it in all kind of possible forums, including movie theaters for which we must complete the appropriate processes and required standards.

 ¿Por qué hacer el documental? / Why do we want to make the documentary?

"La organización por un bien común de los pueblos originarios de México en municipios como San Luis Potosí y Veracruz, es evidente. Los derechos humanos y agrarios de los campesinos de zonas como la Huasteca Potosina y Veracruzana son violentados a causa de los múltiples riesgos irreversibles al medio ambiente que conlleva la técnica del ‘Fracking’, implementada a mayor escala de producción por la actual Reforma Energética. La angustia y la reticencia de estos pueblos es el reflejo de la amenaza social que representa la práctica ideada para atender la demanda energética de las grandes ciudades de México. Es el campo y el agua los que permiten la vida al ser humano, es ello y el conocimiento de éstas comunidades sobre el uso y sustentabilidad de los recursos, los hechos que deberían recordar constantemente nuestros líderes”.

"The planing jobs for a common benefit in the indigenous people in Mexico states like San Luis Potosí and Veracruz, is evident. The human and land rights of farmers in regions like the Huasteca Potosina and Huasteca Veracruzana are violated due to the multiple irreversible risks to the environment that the technique of "Fracking" involves when implemented in a larger scale of production as it was established by the current Energy Reform. The anguish and reticence of the native people is the reflection of a social threat that represents this practice designed to supply the energy demand of the large cities of Mexico. It is the earth and water that give life to us, human beings.This, and the knowledge of these communities about the use and sustainability of our natural resources, are the facts that our leaders should constantly remember".

Risks and challenges

Nuestro objetivo es terminar el documental el siguiente año, por lo que este proyecto es un desafío contra el tiempo. Queremos difundir las voces de los pobladores que luchan contra la implementación del Fracking en sus tierras.

The aim is to finish this documentary by next year, that's why the project runs against time. We want to broadcast the voice of the people who have been fighting against Fracking in their territories.
